It might still be January but there is definitely a spring vibe creeping into the beauty world. The latest launches are fresh and fun and we're trying very hard to wait until pay day.
This week's beauty drop features lots of new products for taking good care of skin (which we've sworn we'll do more of this year) along with an on-the-go makeup hero, and a new twist on a much-loved fragrance.
Check out our top picks of the new arrivals:
The spring collection from Clarins arrives this week and it’s just lovely. The clever Glow 2 Go duo stick teams a highlighter and blusher in one easy-to-use stick. It comes in two shades: Holographic, which gives a glowy pink effect and Sunkissed for a warmer bronzed look.
Fans of Chanel’s bright and floral Chance perfume might want to check out the new version of the scent which is about to land. Chance Eau de Parfum is a bold twist on the original – with a heart of jasmine absolute, along with notes of essence of rose and smooth musk. If you find the original Chance a bit light, this intense version could be perfect. Available from 11 January.
If upping your skincare game was one of your new year beauty resolutions, Charlotte Tilbury is here for it, with her double cleanse double act. The Goddess Cleansing Ritual Miracle Spa-in-a-Jar Duo has a citrus oil cleanser to melt away makeup and brighten skin, and a cream-to-foam charcoal cleanser to purify.
The latest range from Nivea is all about taking care of skin when you live in a city, as urban environments can be tough on the complexion (thanks, pollution). The new line includes a trio of one minute masks - Purify, Moisturise and Pore Refine – which are aimed at rebalancing skin thanks to a blend of clays and magnolia extract.
L’Occitane’s shea butter collection is one of the best skin soothing ranges around (we’re never far from a hand cream). The pretty limited-edition range, created with Rifle Paper Co., features this gorgeous body cream. It’s 25 per cent shea butter and has apricot oil and marshmallow to soothe and soften so skin is left feeling fantastic.
